NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING FOREST GROVE PLANNING COMMISSION NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Forest Grove Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing on Monday, October 7, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. or thereafter, in the Community Auditorium, 1915 Main Street, to review the following: Proposal: Re-naming a street segment from 15th Avenue to 15th Place; and changing one address at 1510 Crescent Drive to a 15th Place address. Location: 15th Avenue / 15th Place right-of-way from Crescent Drive to Maple Street Applicant: City of Forest Grove File Number: 311-19-000024-PLNG Criteria: The Planning Commission will consider the proposal and make a recommendation to the City Council based on ORS 227.120 Procedure and Approval for Renaming Streets. Explanation: The street segment from Crescent Drive to Larch Street is officially designated as 15th Avenue, while the segment from Larch Street to Maple Street is officially designated as 15th Place. The City’s Utility Billing database indicates that most of the parcels along this street are already identified with Place addresses, and the street is already sign-posted as 15th Place along its entirety. However, emergency responders are dispatched based on official addresses, and a discrepancy in the street name could result in a delayed response to an emergency call. To correct this anomaly, the proposal would officially designate the entire street as 15th Place. At this time and place all persons will be given reasonable opportunity to give testimony about this proposal. If an issue is not raised in the hearing (by person or by letter) or if the issue is not explained in sufficient detail to allow the Planning Commission to respond to the issue, then that issue cannot be used for an appeal to the Land Use Board of Appeals. If additional documents or evidence are provided in support of the application, any party shall be entitled to a continuance of the hearing. Unless there is a continuance, if a participant so requests before the conclusion of the initial evidentiary hearing, the record shall remain open for at least seven days after the hearing. Information pertaining to this request may be obtained from Senior Planner James Reitz at the Community Development Department, PO Box 326, 1924 Council Street, (503) 992-3233 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ( The staff report will be available seven days prior to the hearing; copies will be available at cost.
